Sam Smith made light of his recent eye surgery on Monday night (Jan. 14), sharing a photo of the aftermath accompanied by the ingenious caption: “Stye with me,” a light-hearted pun referncing his 2014 hit, “Stay With Me.”
In the photo Smith showed off a black eye patch over his bandaged left eye, taken after his surgery to remove a large stye that he said kept “getting worse.”
He was also updating his fans on his Instagram stories about what he said was a 15-minute procedure yesterday. “So. I’m getting it operated on in 20 minutes,” he said. “I’m fucking scared and also super hyped that I get to wear this pirate patch,” Smith wrote in a photo of him holding the eye patch.
He then joked, “I’m being super dramatic. It’s like a 15 minute operation lol.”
